From what I gather at the Service Dept., there is no such thing as
an invalid baptism. They defined it out of existence. A secondary
WT article referred to this about a year ago - if you go thru
with being dunked and don't tell people right away that it ain't
real - the baptism is valid and you are as liable to be df'd as the
So, no matter what the fraud involved by inept elders who approved
somebody - or what gross immorality they were involved in at the
moment of baptism - or how compelled or beaten a kid may be -
it's a valid baptism.
How expedient. How strange that the Society, with all their self
righteous standards, TAKES THE SAME SUPERFICIAL, PHONEY, "GOIN'
-THRU -THE-MOTIONS" VIEW AS THE TEENAGERS WHO FALL AWAY! Baptism
doesn't have to represent anything real as a dedication. Its done,
its counted - that's it! This is actually rather surprizing because
they've devalued the whole thing as a Christian rite.
But I guess they already did that when they accepted young hormone
charged kids, who are forced into meetings/service - as dedicated
and baptised members , anyway.
